Account value as of 18 mar 2010 13:46 CET is EUR 818, EUR 600 was taken out on 17.mar. this means that S8 is up from about 1300 euros on mar 5 to about 1400 euros today. That's pretty okay , considering s8 is the low risk system.
Since mar5 the systems overall have done pretty well, except S2 and S3, which have been too higly levered for the kind of market we've seen. The best levered system for this period was system4 who doubled in the period. S8 made some money due to the chinese and asian currecies starting to rise a little, i've been waiting for that for a pretty long time, i expect this shift in currency balances to continue and to add to S8's profits the next many weeks. I withdrew a total of 1800 euros since mar 5, and now the total of all systems is down to 1891 euros. This is about as low as i can possibly go and still get meaningfull results. The money was withdrawn because i really needed them for some other projects, and because i would like even less to take more money out of another account which is short 30yr us debt, oil and the sp500.
I have spent some time and money putting up a new company that will continue some research on a stock trading system, which is already under development. When the dust settles some money should be freed up, and i will recapitalize my speculative adventures.
knowledge as well as smarts are needed to make money.
